57,217 is my final count for the night. If the story contines at the rate of 500 words to each note card of material, I've got about 7,500 to 8,000 more to go. I suspect that it won't go quite that well, but I see another 5-6,000 at least. Maybe I'll have this done within the next 24 hours. Hard to say, though probably not. Russ will be home tonight, and we'll have only a few hours together before he leaves for New York. I'm sure I'll be done before the weekend is out at the worst.
Unless I get side tracked by another story. That's not impossible, though I'm fighting the urge off!
There is so much I want to write. Good thing the new year is almost upon us, and I'll have good use for those ideas!
But right now... a few hours sleep!
